JESUS OUR SAVIOR!
“Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and the renewing of the Holy Ghost; which he shed upon us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior.” Titus 3:5, 6
HOPE FOR TOMORROW:
The Braggadocio claim by the so called righteous might sound like this, “Look what I have done!” When all that anyone has done or could ever do would never be enough to save any of us, they may further ask, “But what about all of the people that I have helped?” But Jesus may simply say to them, as we read,
“And then I will profess unto them, I never knew you, depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” Mathew 7:23
HOW CAN THIS BE...?
But Jesus! These things were done in your name! The answer is easy, because these were not done because they have known him he will say, “I never knew you!” These things were done so that they would be known by others. To be seen by others. To be honored by men. Not by God. Yet not one of these that they try to impress can save them, but still they work hard to be seen and honored by others. Only Jesus can save, only Jesus can receive us, and only Jesus will say to us,
“Well done thou good and faithful servant, enter ye into my rest.” Mathew 25:23
It is not by our works that we are saved, it is only by his mercy. His mercy forgives our sins, not our good works. Only his shed blood washes and cleanses us of all of our dark stains. Only through Jesus are we forgiven our sins. Our good works do not make us clean.
The love of God and the sacrifice of Jesus for our souls is all that we have, as we read,
“Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” 1John 4:10
“As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.” John 15:9
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
Do you know Jesus? To know Jesus receive him into your heart and allow his words to transform your life!
